Sitting in a graveyard after dark in rural Kentucky.
The only place in my house with a mirror are the bathrooms, so if i want to check something, I play a bit in the bathroom...
I've never done this, but I think I remember there was an environmental type group that hiked with cellos on their backs and played wherever they went...
I'm a projectionist at a movie theater so I do most of my practicing upstairs in the booth. There isn't a ceiling and we have cement floors so the acoustics are good to a little on the loud side. I do most of my practicing when we are close but sometimes I do it when we are running film so if you are watching a movie and think you are hearing a trumpet, that's probably me.
Hey! You could play along with the movie score, nobody would know!
Any lake is a great place, as long as it's not too windy. It swallows up the big volume mass you thought you had when you practiced in the house, and preps you for large venues and outdoor ampatheatres.
in the car, with an 8 foot piece of 1/2" plastic tubing with a bell on the end. It was in C major and my first natural trumpet. I made cassettes with all of the concertos that I could find. I had a wicked lip trill as I was driving about 50,000 miles a year.
I bring my mouthpiece with me everywhere I go, and I am always pulling it out and playing. Whether at work or on the road. As for actual practice with my horn, I tend to just stay in my room -- call me boring if you want
LOL. My dad built a similar trumpet over his last few months on the job until he retired. I can't remember whether he used PVC or copper plumbing.
My most unusual was the stairwell at Mercer County College in NJ while I was waiting for my ride home after practice with the community band.
Under the arch of the Natural Bridge in Virginia. looking at George Washington's signature on the rock.
in the bathroom.......
that is where I wrote "dear John" letters........
In the bathroom one can play like crap, and conveniently dispose of the evidence!
